Well, I sent out a mass email to everyone in the Northwest about a holiday get together but didn't get a lot of responses to it.
 
I'm going to need help with this if we do want to do a get together before the holidays start.  I've got too much on my plate right now to handle all the planning and everything else.  Any volunteers?
 
Some of the suggestions that I did get were for a date of 22 November.  And two people mentioned maybe doing a afternoon thing for people who are traveling a distance to make it.  The only location suggested was the Great Wolf Lodge in Rochester, WA. Any other suggestions?  I'd like to get this rolling as Nov. is just around the corner. 
 
Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can provide.

Great wolf would be very spendy, and very noisy, been there, fun place if you like to keep your wallet open and enjoy loud bratty kids.

I also have a lot on my plate going into the holiday and with my state meeting in November also.  But would be willing to help.  the 22nd would be a tight fit for me.

Any thoughts out there for AFTER the HOLIDAY, say January, That way we would have the parties and the traveling to here and there behind us and we would also be able to show off any of the cool things we got for being nice all year.

Just a thought
Larry

I said the Great Wolf as the wife has been to some meetings there and said the food was great. I was thinking we would have our own room, not with the "little" people. Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

Anywho no way I can do a afternoon deal as I be a little busy harvesting these days but would tell anyone that they can come get a nice REAL Christmas tree if they would like. No cost.

I don't know if Julia and I will make it. The drive is at least 4 hours in good weather, but the pass could have snow on it that time of year. If we happen to be in Portland than I would say yes, so the best I can do right now is a maybe.

I also called the Country Cousin (exit 82).  Sent out an email to that effect.  Haven't been there in a while but I remember the food was decent and prices reasonable.  They said they could gives us the banquet room but would not guarantee exclusivity if they got busy.  15% gratuity to be added but no problem with separate checks.

Wolf Lodge sounds good too.

Okay not sure if anyone is going to see this or not.  We have our end of the season together, we had 12 people in attendance we shared a few moments for Todd, had the folding chair set up which was won by our crew this last summer at a show for having the most members in attendance there was an 8.5X11 picture of Todd placed on the chair.

Santa came and handed out a few small items to the vette heads, the food was okay but sitting around the table laughing, talking and remembering was by far the best of the best.  This truly is more than a web site, we have became an extended family where the time we spend together is to short and the time in between meets is to long.
I truly do respect and love everyone of you.

Looks like there will be a respectful amount of us going to the service for Todd.
Larry

P.S. I squeezed the chicken I did not choke it.

Larry it was a blast. Sorry I ran out after dinner but I was way tired and my son had just came home from college. I got to see him for 10 minutes before running out for dinner. What a surprise. He had broken his ankle so he couldnt do the big snowboard trip and the wife flew him home to surprise us. That was so cool.

Again good to see everyone and it was good to sit where we talked about just stuff. Thanks all.

Much fun!!! Great to see everyone again!!  Santa was great!!!  Ate way too much!  Never caught up with the other southbounders.   Seems I'm getting that noise on the right side of the bimmer now too.  It's kind of a  trombone sound.  
 
Seriously though, I was just thinking that maybe we could, on all future events, have the "empty chair" in remembrance of our fallen compadre(s).

You guys are great. I'm sure Todd was there in spirit. Sorry we could not be there. We are planning on going to the service for Todd. I'll talk with Bob about the plans.
